Tutonish numbering rules

Now that you’ve had a gist of the most useful numbers, let’s move to the writing rules for the tens, the compound numbers, and why not the hundreds, the thousands and beyond (if possible).

  • Digits from one to nine are rendered by specific words: ein [1], to [2], tri [3], fier [4], fem [5], seks [6], syv [7], ot [8], and ni [9].
  • The tens are formed by suffixing the multiplier digit with the word for ten (ti), except for ten itself: ti [10], toti [20], triti [30], fierti [40], femti [50], seksti [60], syvti [70], otti [80], and niti [90].
  • Numbers from eleven to nineteen are formed by suffixing the word for ten (ti) with the unit with no space, but with an apostrophe when the digit name starts with a vowel: ti’ein [11], tito [12], titri [13], tifier [14], tifem [15], tiseks [16], tisyv [17], ti’ot [18], and tini [19].
  • Other compound numbers are formed by separating the ten and the unit with a hyphen (e.g.: toti-tri [23], syvti-to [72]).
  • The hundreds are formed by setting the multiplier digit before the word for hundred (hundr) separated with a space: ein hundr [100], to hundr [200], tri hundr [300], fier hundr [400], fem hundr [500], seks hundr [600], syv hundr [700], ot hundr [800], and ni hundr [900].
  • The thousands are formed by setting the multiplier digit before the word for thousand (tusn) separated with a space: ein tusn [1,000], to tusn [2,000], tri tusn [3,000], fier tusn [4,000], fem tusn [5,000], seks tusn [6,000], syv tusn [7,000], ot tusn [8,000], and ni tusn [9,000].
  • Large numbers names are following the short scale principle, in which each new term is one thousand times its previous one. They are formed by prefixing the jon root by the power of one thousand multiplied by thousand. Thus, we have einjon (million, 106, or 1 000*1 0001), then tojon (billion, 109, or 1 000*1 0002), trijon (trillion, 1012, or 1 000*1 0003), fierjon (quadrillion, 1015), femjon (quintillion, 1018)… And we can go up to nijon (nonillion, 1030).
